Thank you to everyone for your help and suggestions.
Good luck! Weight range is the most critical spec of a board while you're shopping, and then you tailor the length based on ability, muscle, what you plan to do with the board, etc.

As a beginner it's always best starting in the middle of the weight/flex/size ranges. Sounds like you got something that should work fine for you...
